U.K. punk band Trash Boat hail from Saint Albans, England. Playing emotive and raw blasts in the vein of Knuckle Puck, the Story So Far, and Roam, the quintet were formed in 2014 by expressive frontman Tobi Duncan, guitarists Dann Bostock and Ryan Hyslop, bassist James Grayson, and drummer Oakley Moffatt.
They released their first EP, Look Alive, in 2015, and quickly followed it with Brainwork that same year. Signing with Hopeless Records, they unveiled their debut LP, Nothing I Write You Can Change What You've Been Through, in June 2016. It included singles "Strangers" and "How Selfish I Seem." They promoted the record with a nationwide tour, including an appearance at the Reading and Leeds Festivals and as the opening act for American hardcore outfit Beartooth at their U.K. shows that Christmas. Trash Boat returned in 2018 with their sophomore effort Crown Shyness, which was preceded by the single "Shade." ~ Neil Z. Yeung
